For the first time, the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) was convened outside the US—in Florence
in the heart of the province of Tuscany, Italy. This event, held September 2010, was an important step for SPE towards better serving our growing global knowledge community and acknowledging the contribution of worldwide members to the Society’s technical legacy.
Young professionals continued to make an impact. Inspired by the Renaissance, they provided ATCE with two of its greatest highlights: the ATCE Young Professionals technical paper awards and the Young Professionals workshop.
